US into quarters at WWC
With their 3-0 victory today the US women's national team played their way into the next round of the World Cup. Overall a good performance that was somewhat dampened by poor finishing. The competition gets harder from here on out and the US cannot depend on getting 27 shots so when they do get their chances they need to be more efficient in making them count. The worst culprit was Abby Wambach who is one of the world's leading goal scorers. The victory also put the USA in a position to win the group with only a tie against Sweden in the final game of round robin play. The Swedish team with be without their captain as she got her second yellow card and so will have to sit out a game.
